Using a 25 ft Tape Measure to span a distance of 90 miles…

Come one, come all! Elmers! Newbies! Let’s build a portable 3-element yagi antenna from a common 25 ft. tape measure. How does it span 90 miles? By giving you the signal strength to get into the Mt. Mitchell repeater.  It is also very handy when hunting a pesky transmission that doesn’t want to be found.  (Fox hunting!)

GCARS February meeting is tomorrow night, Monday the 1st @ 7 pm at the American Red Cross Building in Gastonia.  During the presentation time, we will be building antennas that we may use on our next fox hunt which will be Saturday, Feb. 13th!!!!

We hope to see you tomorrow night! I’m going to get to solder for the first time ever and will probably burn myself! You don’t want to miss the fun! Let’s have fun learning together!

Blessings & 73’s, Chantel, KM4LWL
